A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans sidewalk upgrades to be followed by asphalt paving along a section of KY 144/East 4th Street in Owensboro starting Wednesday. This work zone along KY 144/East 4th Street (Old US 60) runs from mile point 0.710 at Isaac Shelby drive extending easterly to the overpass at the entrance to CSI Services at mile point 1.790, a distance of just over 1 mile. Work to upgrade sidewalk connections to meet ADA-Americans With Disabilities Act regulations will require short lane restrictions at various locations near intersections. Once the sidewalk upgrades are completed, the contractor will start paving along this section. Yager Materials, LLC, is the prime contractor on this $382,971 highway improvement project. KYTC personnel will attempt to provide updates as the work progresses.
